Last month OnePlus launched its latest flagship smartphone—the OnePlus 10 Pro. That being said, the China-exclusive debut failed to create the same level of excitement as prior releases. Thankfully, OnePlus could still have a trick left up its sleeve. As per rumors, OnePlus will soon release an Ultra model whose design has surfaced online recently. Here, we will be discussing every little detail there is about the rumored OnePlus 10 Ultra, including its specs and launch.
OnePlus 10 Ultra Rumors Roundup
Recently a patent surfaced online depicting the design of the upcoming OnePlus flagship phone. It was first spotted by TechInsider. The design resembles the OnePlus 10 Pro for the most part but with some changes on the rear panel.
OnePlus 10 Ultra will still have the extended camera bump, but it will house a small display in addition to the camera sensors. The drawing also reveals a periscope lens which is something new for OnePlus. While OnePlus has released phones with telescope lenses in the past, it is yet to release one with a periscope lens. Thus, OnePlus 10 Ultra could be the first phone from the company to have a periscope lens.

Interestingly, some claim the OnePlus 10 Ultra will pack the Dimensity 9000 chipset. However, it could even pack a different version of Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 built on TSMC’s 6nm process. We will have to wait to see what’s coming up.
Moving on, it will be paired with Oppo’s proprietary MariSilicon X NPU, which is an independent image signal processing chip. Thus, we can expect better image quality with the 10 Ultra. Similarly, it will ship with Android 12 out of the box.
We expect the other features of the OnePlus 10 Ultra to be similar to that of the 10 Pro. It will have an LTPO 2.0 display with a left-aligned camera cutout. It will also retain the support for 80W wired fast charging.
OnePlus 10 Pro Launch Date (Expected)
OnePlus usually announces the global launch of its flagship in March. Thus, we may get to see the OnePlus 10 Ultra next month alongside the vanilla 10. Some leaks also suggest it will launch in the second half of the year.
